     This week begins with Gold having another go at the $1,200 mark; currently it is $1,182 which is up over $50 from its recent low. This increase certainly helped the FUN Convention as prices advanced on all modern bullion coins as well as early generic U.S. Gold. The majority of changes in this week’s HD Wholesale Market Dealer Price Guide are in the U.S. Gold charts showing mixed results. While many prices are lower since the last update, much of the common dates recouped some of their losses by the end of last week. Dealers are hopeful that this year will bring the beginning of a bull market. We are still seeing MS65 $20 Saints trade near the $1,500 level among dealers.
